Welcome to APSIM

NEWS

University of Southern Queensland joins the APSIM initiative.

The APSIM initiative has been further strengthened with the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) recently joining the APSIM initiative (AI) as a member. 

USQ brings an extensive range of expertise to the AI collaboration including:

  • Cropping and grazing system
  • Climate Science
  • Bio-economics
  • Interface design
  • Data analytics
  • App and decision support tool design and development
  • Development of educational materials using APSIM

USQ has been an active user of APSIM in its research and educational activities and its membership reflects its dedication to the continued improvement of the model’s science and applications.

Biochar model

Iowa State University (Archontoulis et al. 2016) have developed a biochar model for APSIM that integrates biochar knowledge and enables simulation of biochar effects within cropping systems.

This model has been released in APSIM  7.9 as an 'example'. It can be accessed by clicking 'New' from within the user interface and selecting the biochar folder. For more details see http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcbb.12314/full

Global agricultural systems modelling community convening in Berlin

Author: Chris Murphy/Tuesday, 19 January 2016/Categories: Features

In March 2016, agricultural systems modellers will meet in Berlin, Germany, for an international symposium, coordinated by scientists from Germany, Finland, Australia and the USA. The agricultural systems modelling network spans the whole globe and more than 300 participants are expected to show up for the event, organized by the Leibniz Centre of Agricultural Landscape Research in Müncheberg, Germany. Crop models have developed into indispensable tools in the ongoing discussion on global food security, but only their consistent application through global co-operation assures their usefulness and credibility at the interfaces of agronomy with economics and in informing policy-making. Additional details can be found on the symposium flyer or website www.icropm2016.org.

Simulation models for the growth and development of crops have become very popular, especially in the context of climate change impact assessments. But they are also widely used in other fields of agronomy. Agronomists apply models to investigate how present and future climate, different existing and new cultivars and alternative soil and crop management practices will affect the yields, water use and other outputs of crops and how that affects food security and the environment at various levels – from farm to global.
